Making sure that your eyes serve you throughout your life and in a reliable way is an important thing to do. Many people get used to using spectacles to read and see easier, while other lose total sight just because they have not taken good care of their eyes when they had the chance to do so. Treating your eyes like the valuable and fragile body parts that they are is vital if you expect to use them for your lifetime without any avoidable issues. As such taking good care of your eyes through practising good eye care habits is important for everyone to know, whether you have 20/20 vision or not. Below are some good habits that you should consider.

If you want to avoid cataract surgery or extreme operations from ailments that you could have easily avoided, you should ensure that you do everything that you can to protect your eyes. This begins with doing the basic things, including resting your eyes after extended use and getting plenty of sleep to avoid eye fatigue, eating healthy and exercising daily to prevent diseases that could accelerate or cause eye problems including diabetes, as well as wearing protective goggles when in extremely brightly lit areas or when working with power tools and industrial equipment. Apart from these basic tips some additional tips that you may not be aware about but which could be extremely useful include the following: First of all, if you are used to using eye drops to reduce allergic effects to your eyes, then you should stop doing so (with your doctor’s help) and find the root cause of the problem and fix it or manage it instead. Eye drops usually contain steroids to get rid of allergic effects to the eyes including itchiness and these can have a diminished effect over time because your eyes will get used to the dose or become less tolerant and responsive. Your eyes could also respond by getting worse over time and get what is called rebound redness.

If you want to protect your eyes from all sorts of problems including particles getting into your eyes and UV light damage, you should get a good pair of UV protective sunglasses. An eye doctor in Perth, or close to where you live will be able to help you get a good prescription for your eyes if you need a pair of spectacles that also double as UV light protectors for your eyes. If you wear contact lenses, you should also get used to taking them out before you go to bed every day and that you clean them before and after you wear them with the right cleaning solution to ensure that they don’t cause harm to your eyes. If you wear eye make-up, you should also make the habit of getting it all off before you sleep because it can clog the pores around your eyes which can cause hordeolum.
